There will be the “they didn’t have to do the actual rape and yet still could have been involved with the assault” and “Who cares if the actual rapist said he worked alone- he’s a crook and a murderer…you can’t believe a word he says (while simultaneously believing the confessions of the five kids they think ARE crooks themselves)” crowd here shortly.
I don’t have to watch the Netflix series (although I will).
I lived in the NYC area when this went down. The attack was horrific and the populace was pissed. Someone was GOING to go down for that crime…it happened to be these five people.
(Although an equally brutal assault on a young black girl in Brooklyn, I believe, that happened about the same time went completely unreported).
